Just not for me. Too sweet. Doesn’t taste much like beer, but guess I should have expected this from watermelon.

Aroma is like pop rocks watermellon with a 7-Up mashup. Apperance is copper with 1 finger head. Flavor is bitter carmel with a slight melon finish. There is a distinct alcohol burn - not exactly masked as with other DIPAs - just sayin. Not overly hopped but definitely a big beer. Not a bad DIPA - a nice beer nonetheless.

Want to take a solid west coast double ipa and ruin it? Look no further! What I liked about the base dorado was the balanced combination of hops and malty flavors. This feels like all the complexity is now buried under a shellac of fake watermelon. Too much watermelon!
